Lockout looming? NHL is 1 year away from key labor deadline
Now you may be wondering why the Tigers would even pull their goalie down by four, and that has to do with the time of year. They came into the game only two points behind the Edmonton Oil Kings for that playoff spot. With the win, the Hurricanes clinched the Central Division and Skinner added 38 saves to go along with his goal. The Tigers have one last shot to keep their playoff hopes alive as they face Lethbridge again later on Saturday.

But when Ron Hextall scored the first goal actually shot by a goaltender, he was mobbed on the ice by his teammates and celebrated loudly by the play-by-play announcers. Hextall was notorious for his temper, but he was also well-known for his ability to play the puck well.
He established that puckhandling reputation early by scoring his first career goal as a sophomore player on Dec. The goal came after the Boston Bruins pulled their netminder.
Hextall corralled the puck in his end and fired it down the ice. The puck rolled between two defenders and into the net. Detroit Red Wing goalie Chris Osgood scored on a goal on March 6, against the Hartford Whalers, becoming only the second netminder to actually shoot the puck in the net, after Ron Hextall. What might come as a surprise is that two of those goals were given to him after opposing players scored on their own nets. Brodeur only scored once with a shot on goal, and it came against the Montreal Canadiens team he grew up idolizing.
Brodeur stopped the puck behind the net and blasted it down the rink from beside his goal, catching the Canadiens by surprise and burying it in the back of their net. The goal came during an April 17, playoff game, making Brodeur the second netminder to score in the post-season.
It was the first goalie goal scored with a backhanded shot, and the second goal scored by a goalie who registered a shutout in the same game. The goal came when Theodore stopped a dump-in behind his net and backhanded it hard out of the zone.
